Redbacks improve but fail to get over the line

The Lady Redbacks swarm to the ball during their clash with Melton on Sunday.

The Carisbrook Lady Redbacks continued their 2019 season battle at the weekend with a triple header at home in front of a large black and red crowd.

None of the three sides claimed a win over their respective competitors, but there were some positives for the club to take away from round three.

The senior Redbacks finally got their first 2019 goal on the board in a clash with Melton.

The first quarter saw multiple attempts at goal from the home side, with five behinds resulting, while their competitors nailed two majors to take a seven-point lead into the second.

Carisbrook didn’t add to the board at all in the second quarter, but allowed Melton to edge ahead with another 1.7.

Brook trailed by 20 points heading into the third, but a rest at halftime gave the understaffed Redbacks the energy they needed to put two goals and one behind through.

All the while Melton had sealed the deal with an extra three goals before the three-quarter time siren.

Another goal in the last quarter bumped Brook into the 20s, but in the end, they conceded a 3.6 (24) to 8.10 (58) loss to a better developed side with a strong bench.
